Have you got eyes on the pies?
Our Sourced Locally pie producers share their favourite pies for British Pie Week.
It’s British Pie Week (1-7 March) and what’s not to love about a whole week dedicated to cooking and eating pies?
We are celebrating by showcasing two of our local pie producers; Norfolk based bakery Pastry Cutters and Suffolk pie and pastry creators Hollybush Farm Produce Ltd.
When it comes to British pie recipes there’s no shortage of options to indulge in - whether it’s a savoury classic like the humble pork pie or a comforting slice of apple pie.
As the pie experts, we wanted to know what our local pie producers’ all-time favourite pies were – find out what they will be treating themselves to this British Pie Week.
Norfolk based bakery Pastry Cutters has been producing an award-winning range of handmade and hand-finished pies, cakes and pastries for over thirty-five years, working from traditional family recipes. Company director Richard Hadley and his son Jonathan are ensuring that artisan skills and expertise continue to be passed along.
Steeped in history, Pastry Cutters’ pastry recipe has been passed down generations from Richard’s grandmother and Jonathan’s great grandmother.
This British Pie Week, Jonathan will be tucking into his favourite pie; which is the classic, hearty steak and Guinness with shortcrust pastry.
